It’s something that you practice every single day, that we talk to you about all the time, and that probably feels like second nature at this point: Prevention. While you are certainly running on autopilot when it comes to brushing and the like, how sure are you about whether you’re doing a stand-out job or not? To make sure you’re not missing any details that are essential to your oral health, your Riverside dentist offers some preventive care tips and tricks.

Use The Right Brush

Your Riverside dentist reminds you that practicing optimal preventive care means using the right brush. There’s no one particular selection that will work for everyone. However, the guidelines are always the same: Use one that is a good size for your mouth and that has soft bristles.

Brush Long Enough

If you brush but you’re not brushing for two minutes, your Riverside dentist explains that you’re not making the most of your preventive care. Time yourself until you’re used to brushing for enough time.

Use That Dental Floss

If you realize that your dental floss has been in the medicine cabinet in the exact same spot for quite a while, it’s time to start flossing again. This is a step that you must practice to maximize the benefits of your home care.

See Us Consistently

Don’t just come in when something is wrong. Your Riverside dentist reminds you that twice-a-year visits are what good preventive care is made of.
